The Federal Ministry of Interior made this clarification in a tweet on Tuesday.
“The Ministry of Interior did not, has not and will not generate any no-fly list. Ignore fake news, please!” it read.
The Nigeria Immigration Service on Monday barred Modupe Odele from boarding her flight.
Odele is one of the lawyers that was involved in the #EndSARS protests against police brutality and extortion, offering free legal aid to persons who were unjustly arrested during the demonstrations.
She claimed to have been detained while her passport was seized by the officers and she missed her flight.
